Full laparoscopic techniques

Specialists with international experience perform operations using high-tech methods. One of these methods is removal of kidney with an incision of only 5 cm in groin which is performed entirely by laparoscopic surgery. Full laparoscopic techniques used for surgery allows minimum length of stay for donors. This technique is only used at centers with highly experienced and expert staff and offers many advantages compared to open surgeries: For example, open surgeries involve 15-20 cm of incision while with laparoscopy with incision is only 5 cm in length. The operation is performed through a camera that is inserted inside the abdomen enabling high visual control.

The smaller surgical site means less pain post-operation and lower risk surgical wounds. Lack of large surgical scars alleviates cosmetic concerns and lowers the risk of herniation, numbness, surgical site infections and pulmonary embolisms. Due to advanced medical techniques performed, donors may be discharged within 24 hours after the surgery. It is possible that they can start to work within 1 week. Recipient may be discharged from the hospital in about 1 week.
